"Bought this ('97) from brother-in-law who let it sit outside for a year. Just rolled over 150k miles. I've replaced the water pump for the engine and the blower motor for interior vents. Despite being driven hard by all its' owners. It's exactly what I expect from a high-mileage car. And being a V6, acceleration is great! I know it's a sedan "family car", but I tend to drive it like a little sports car. The oil pan is easy to reach without jacking up. However, working on the engine to replace something can be difficult -- i.e. you have to remove the timing belt to get to the water pump. Thank goodness those don't wear out often. I have had the power locks get stuck and want to stay locked/unlocked, just lube it up a little and it's fine"
